Get involved: Tell us your Rising story

We’re looking for Northeast Ohioans to feature on Rising -- our new feature on Channel 3.

Here are the types of people we’re looking to profile.

The Risen

Do you or someone you know have a compelling story to tell about a personal triumph in the face of adversity? If so, send a brief e-mail to with the details of the trial faced, why it was difficult for the individual and the process the individual went through to overcome their challenge to achieve success.  The person should live in or be from Northeast Ohio and be willing to pass on the lessons they learned in a meaningful way to help someone else who is working to rise out of a difficult situation.

The Riser

WKYC would like stories of people in Northeast Ohio who are in the midst of difficult circumstances and are looking to rise above the situation. We are looking for "risers" who are OK with telling the details of the trial/s they are facing and are willing to receive some form of assistance to overcome the obstacle. Send a brief e-mail to describing the person, the difficult situation, and how they’re working to be successful despite the obstacle.

Submit your own Rising moment photo

Tell us about your Rising moment. You lost the weight you wanted, you aced that exam or maybe you finally went a day without worrying. We want to see you show off your personal Rising moment through a photo.

Summarize your moment in one to two sentences, and write the brief description on a sheet of paper. Take a photo of yourself holding the paper with your written Rising moment and submit the photo to WKYC through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
